it in a situation like this, jim. i'm happy to report there was not any indication of any calls last night that people were thinking about their own pnl or business model. trying to make a decision that was right for all of the market participants. we ended up doing that. my bias is to keep markets open but this is a pretty easy decision from our point of view in the end. it's not worth putting people in danger. it's no time to be a hero. it's silly. >> what happened where initially there was a take it would open? when we were at goldman in 1985, the issue is there's no internet or real connection. we didn't have these things. we have internet and people who say we don't even need new york city anymore. how about the out of town guys who thought this was a great chance to trump new york? >> again, we got none of that from the other venues that are located outside of manhattan. there was no talk about them staying open. it goes back to what bob said. if a couple of the major markets are closed, i think you're doing everyone else a disservice if just a few thinly traded venues which would ev

canceled. abc's jim avila has details from reagan national airport in washington. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning. we're pretty much at a ground stop across the eastern seaboard with trains, planes and buses, even cruise ships told to go away. look at this, reagan national, 7:00 on a monday morning, this should be jammed with people. almost totally empty. as we walk across the concourse, the board here is really a wall of cancellations. all the flights canceled here except for a handful are getting out. so it's really quite a mess. and people are being told to stay away from the airports. >> reporter: this morning, much of the nation as a standstill. the per romps superstorm crippling much of america's transportation system. amtrak trains and airports from north carolina to boston virtually shut down. nearly 7,000 flights canceled. most either fly from or through one of the hubs in sandy's path. >> you prepare, prepare, prepare, then they change. >> reporter: all those cancellations are creating a ripple effect. forcing delays as far west as seattle and san francisco. s

friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we have to clean up the mess that they
itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations there. now, the very interesting question that comes
sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
[unintelligible] and action news reporter vernon odem. moderating the debate, jim gardner. >> hello, this is the only broadcast debate in the 2012 senate race between bob casey and tom smith. here are the rules to which they have agreed for today's meeting. the format will include questions candidates from me and our panelists. a coin toss determines the podium position and order of questioning. candidates will have 90 seconds for closing statements. the candidates are here to speak about the issues that voters care about in this important campaign. gentleman, to prepare for this debate, i asked an acquaintance what he has gotten out of the campaign. after a moment or two of hesitation, he said -- well, there is this senator's zeroth thing, then there is this tea party prom thing going on. i asked him -- what else have you gotten out of the campaign? he stared at me and said that he could not really say. i would ask you two gentlemen if you think the campaign has reached the voters and if you are proud the -- proud of the way this campaign has gone. >> first of all, i want to thank
wild out here right now. >> the weather channel's jim cantore with her in new york city. >> will this storm live up to the hype? >> we're going to fd out. this is a factor of the storm beingo big and pushing the wawater up into areas where it can't get out. we saw this with katrina. if the w water comes up as expected, we would be under water, our crew would be under water, the battery park area will be under water. >> donald trump phoning in to me he's staying put in the big apple. >> what -- where are you right now? >>>> i'm in trump tower in my office. >> shouldn't yoube gettiting out of there? >> only because i love new york. we are fully prepared. we know exactly what to do and how to do it. >> you're staying? >> i live or die with it. i built many great ghlings new york and i feel confidence in those buildings because i built them. >> sandy truly a history maker. the stock market's first weather-related shutdown in 27 years. ubway service canceled, grand central station transformed into a ghost town. knbc's chris coleman with mario at the grove. >> what makes this
know, it depends on the scientists. the leading edge scientists like jim hanson, kevin trenberth jim mccarthy, the ones that i think are right out at the cutting edge have been saying this. but you're quite right that many scientists have been very cautious and science has a cautious culture. you could almost say a conservative culture. their peer review process discourages them from even thinking about going out on a limb. and so they -- they are inherently cautious and conservative. but the evidence is now so overwhelming. you know, in the last ten years you showed some of the statistics but there there's an analysis of the extreme hot temperatures on the surface of the earth. they're now 100 times more common than they were just 30 years ago. and it is these extremely hot temperatures that are responsible for the increased evaporation, the increased water vapor in the air the increased drought. and remember this is hardly the only climate related disaster that we've had this year. 65% of the united state
. >> for more on where it is going and what's left we are joined by accuweather's jim dickey. good morning, jim. >> good morning, rob and paula. well, the worst looks like it is over here. sandy will slowly weaken as we head forward. a look at radar imagery, the northeast and mid-atlantic. >> okay. technical difficulty there. we apologize for that too. the question we were talking about earlier, the brunt of the storm is over. at issue, back surge, we are talking about, of course, high tide, as well, in a few hours this morning. >> i was talking with our meteorologist ginger zee. i said is it over? what more can we expect? she says there will be a back surge. with the back surge, you might expect higher wind. we don't know to anticipate more flooding, probably going to come when the sunrises. when the sun rises that's when we'll see the aftermath of the extent of the storm. sam champion our weather editor said, quote, this is the scenario everyone feared when making disaster plans. >> that's why, nickname it the perfect storms. so many dangerous factors collided and now we are seeing the afterm
's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at least 16 deaths total being blamed on this storm. downtown here in lower manhattan, can you see the waters have receded. at the height of the storm though here in battery park there was a storm surge of 13 feet. that is a record-breaker here in new york city. at least 6 million pe
refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, let me inject. i've not plugged into the romney campaign like "the politico" guys. i know about christie. i'm skeptical of the idea that there ever was a moment when romney was going to pick christie for this. it seems cute that it's coming out at this moment. jonathan i want to ask you about demographics heading in to this tuesday. seems like there's basically a test that we're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people
fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic number is 270 electoral college votes to win the big prize. according to the web site, there are now 11 battleground states and statistically, 32 possibilities for up for grabs it states that could produce a 269 vote electoral college tight end. based on this site's simulated polls, the mathematical probability of a tie increasing almost fourfold in recent weeks. it runs the various scenarios of what happens if it goes to the u.s. house of representatives. this is a scenario where mitt romney and joe biden coul
to be affected. >> jim accosta is in cleveland, ohio, with the romney campaign, so, jim, we know that both of these men have canceled their events and from the romney folks' perspective, from their campaign, what was the thinking behind it? >> well, suzanne, i think when the president started containsing his events, it probably started to dawn on the romney campaign that it would be difficult to get out there and do a whole lot of campaigning in a time of national crisis. >> as you mentioned, the romney campaign did announce earlier today it is cancelling events for this evening and tomorrow. it is going to go ahead and carry through with an event set for davenport, iowa, later on this afternoon, and then that's it. suzanne, basically this campaign is in a holding pattern. it is in limbo until all of this passes. just so everybody knows, the governor is not going to be down for the next day and a half. they say don't describe it like that. the other thing we don't know where he will physically be. we assume at this point, suzanne, that they are work out those logistics. earlier today at an
to jim gallagher, the fire chief in linden hur en lindenhurst, new york. jim gallagher, explain what it looks like where you are because i've seen a heck of a lot of watter and a house fire. yes? >> yes. basically, part of our water area is flooded in. we have 2 or 3 feet of water there. earlier this morning we had a house fire that we had to fight, about 2 or 3 feet of water we had to go into to get to this house. >> can you tell me how the house caught fire? >> we didn't really investigate that part right now. my guess is probably the electrical, because it was underneath the water and the electrical probably shorted out. >> how much of this do you anticipate over the next couple days certainly with all this water, issues with utility, issues with electricity? is this just the beginning of a long couple of days, sir? >> yes. it's going to be a long couple days with this. definitely we're having power outages in -- minor pounl minor outages right now, but as the storm gets bigger there will be more, especially through the night. >> jim gallagher, we'll be touch with you. i know wate
angles. we have jim cantor e, he's hole up at the ritz bar down at battery park. we're journalists. >> mike seidel in hell's kitchen. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the weather. the beginning of sandy's effects are arriving up and down the mid-atlantic. winds are expected to reach 90 miles an hour, and already those living near the water have been forced evacuate. today it's expected to hook west and take aim at the northeast coast, leaving tens of millions of people just hours now to prepare. the entire new york city transit system is shut down. schools are closed along with those in baltimore, boston and washington, d.c. meteorologist bill karins is here with the very latest on the hurricane. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule. nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never forge
in the eastern and southeastern parts of pennsylvania. on the fallout from jim thorpe pennsylvania. caller: good morning. how are you doing yo? i have more of a comment. the lady was talking about redistricting and also the voter ideologue. with the republican party, what they did it to the libertarian and the constitution party, the republican party is not a choice on the ballot. with the voter i.d. law, all they want to do is disenfranchise the voter. okay? the republican party but the libertarian party through hell, to be honest with you. just to get 1% of the boat off the ballot. -- of the vote off. the libertarian party never got more than 1% of the votes nationally and i think it's ridiculous. i have volunteered for the libertarian party. they were arguing over signatures. what a waste of time and taxpayers' money because that had to all go in to the courts. host: terry madonna, third parties and the pennsylvania ballot. guest: gary johnson will be on the ballot house will -- as will jill stein of the green party. pennsylvania can write someone in. we will essentially have four two choices
